    To my knowledge this was an in store demo.So no modding went on.

    Also I am still waiting for an answer on how to fix it.I want to fix it myself not send it off for repair.

    So if someone could point me in the direction of a guide or something similar to fix this that would be helpful.

    So much for the experts on this site.

    A week and 2 days and no solutions.

    The best help I found was on my own and that it is most likely one of the fuses are blown.

    This site sucks and is only here to take money for premium assistance.

Look my friend the problem of your ps2 is something relationship with the bios, the bios is the program that run at start of your console (without the disc, the navigator menu) this problem is caused because tried to modify your console with some modchip and they do it wrong. Unfortunately your console can't be fixed for you, it has to be some expert in the area (not the guy who try to modify your ps2 of course) in the ps2slim is easy to reapir this things but in ps2 fat is no way back. BLACK SCREEN MEANS DEATH IN SONY CONSOLES, but your console can be fix. I'm from Guatemala.

The way to fix this problem is to hold down the power button until the reset menu comes up and then select restore default settings , you will lose everything and be left with a working ps3

Check the AV HDMI cables on the back of the tv. You may have the cable in the wrong sockets. Then try turning on the PS 2.

You shouldnt have too. I think I know the problem. Turn on your ps2 without a game in it and it would take you to the home screen. After that go to browser with your ps1 memory card and select it. And then it should give you an option to format it. Hope this helps

Yes the problem is the laser. It's on its way out (and is almost completely out). You can find a new laser for the 77001 console at the following page. They also sell the completely laser assembly which includes all moving parts in there:

Can't play dual layered disk in playstation slim silver


I know, this is very annoying. Mine is SCPH-79001.
Just put in the game like you would any game (that would read) and you should hear a few ticks. Turn the ps2 horizontly with the front facing you. And whenever you hear a tick, just tap it against you knee, then you should hear it spinning.

My ps2 wouldn't read GH world tour or metallica, but know it works. Hope I helped

Read disc error


You said the model is 77001?? is that the slim type ps2?? if it is try this troubleshooting step

if the console is lying down flat where the disc lid is at the right side, try applying pressure on the lower right corner of the lid, sometimes the lid's safety button gets worn out and it will give you disc read error if this solves the problem then the button really is busted, if you have technical background you try and change the button

Disk Error...Grinding sound when i put it in


I think you will also have trouble with reading Audio CDs. This is s sign that your Laser is dirty. The following procedure is for the older Big PS2. It will not work for the Slim PS2 model. Do not ever use Alcohol on the Slim models Laser Lens.

I hope your in the right posting area, this is for the Phat PS2 consoles with the drawer that comes out to put the CD in. Procedure is different for Slim PS2.
  1. Disconnect power and turn the case upside down.
  2. Remove the screw covers to expose the case screws. These are little square pieces or square rubber pads. You can use a thin knife blade to pry the hard plastic squares up.
  3. Remove all the screws.
  4. Remove the Warranty sticker to the right edge of the power socket.
  5. Turn the PS2 over to set it right side up.
  6. lift the top cover from the back and pull it forward slightly to clear the CD tray. Be careful of a possibly Ribbon cable attached to the lid going to the Reset/Eject buttons. Roll the cover over to the right leaving the ribbon intact.
  7. Remove the CD tray lid.
  8. Polish the Laser lens, and remove any lint or hair from the CD area. Use Alcohol and cotton swabs to clean the laser lens. By the way, Alcohol will damage a PS2 Slim lens. All lens are not created equally.
  9. Hook up the power and A/v Cables.
  10. Remove the little white disc from the CD tray lid.
  11. Place a Disc on the spindle, and cap the disc with the little white piece that you removed from the CD tray cover.
  12. Boot up the PS2 and test it, Continue cleaning until you get it to work.
  13. Put it back together, and you’re in business.
If you have trouble you can send your PS2 to a Repair shop. Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. then choose "Video Game Consoles". Then you pick a Good Repair shop. My shop is listed, but I cannot divulge the name in this forum. Cost will be $25 plus shipping. Shipping is usually $8.95 to the USA

Ps2 slimline.


Hi,

 

You mean A/V ( Audio /Visual)cables.  This could be several things.  Motherboard bad. A/V Socket on back of Slim has a bad connection to the motherboard.  Try it on another TV, you may have a bad input on the TV.  You selected the wrong input on the TV. The channel is not set properly on the TV. 

 

The first two can be repaired by a Technician that knows about Playstation Repair and has plenty of Current experince.I run the website www.playstationclinic.com, and will charge up to $51 to repair this, if it is related to the first two possible problems.
